Quilty Day Out

Yesterday I had a wonderful day out with some lovely ladies ... admired gorgeous quilts ... enjoyed some yummy food ... and perused enticing stalls.

Just a little spending was done as I kept thinking of all my projects, UFO's etc waiting at home.
First up 3 buttons just because I liked them. The cat to remind me of my girls; the letter 'N' is obvious; and a pretty cup for the coffee that keeps me going sometimes. Then I spotted a small pincushion kit and couldn't pass on the pink/red/black fabrics which included the precut hexies, templates and other bits which I will share later with a photo of the finished item. I made the hexies up last night. Also I've been on the lookout for a pencil for tracing stitcheries so I'm going to give this one a go.

Last but certainly not least, I spyed this wool in a patchwork shop and a good friend has a scarf made from it ... it's soooo lovely and soft. So I grabbed two balls because I couldn't decide on which colour, and shall endeavour to attempt to knit myself a scarf. The scarf only takes one ball and the instructions are on the wrapper.
Off to finish my pincushion.
